*ALL* orders must be e-mailed to us

A current FFL MUST BE on-file with us ALREADY before we will accept any order for a post-1898 firearm!   

Federal Firearms Licenses cannot be "sent to us later".   It is a very good idea to send us a signed copy of your (or your local transfer dealer's) FFL in advance for our files to avoid missing out on the item you may want.  This is SOP in the industry.  We accept (and actually prefer) a scanned & emailed copy of your (or your dealer's) Federal Firearms License.

We absolutely WILL NOT "HOLD" any firearm without a FFL being on-file and payment MUST be made immediately via credit-card.

GERMAN Model 98k Mauser bolt-action rifle # 6190aq (8x57mm) mfg. by Brno (code dot) in 1944.  At first glance a nearly as-new all-matching 98k with full bluing and an excellent mirror-bright bore.  At least that is what it was represented as in a recent Ohio auction ("book $2800").  In actuality this is a poorly done re-numbered and "humped" 98k with the Nazi eagles having the swastikas defaced with a punch by whoever captured it back in 1945. The beech stock has grasping grooves on the forend and no provision for cleaning rod.
